adopted a rescue puppy last Sunday.
this is Tawni, she is 3 months old. she was abandoned in a mine in Kentucky along with her 3 brothers, then was placed in a kill shelter along with her brothers. they were removed from that shelter and flown to Pgh, Pennsylvania. the foster mom had them for 9 days. they all have found their forever homes.


she is Australia Shepherd mix.
my 9 yr. old Aussie and her are getting along really well.

Colorado sure got the message. It was only in the mid-60s today and to be the low 60s tomorrow if it gets that high.

Cassie is slowing down some and drinking a lot of water. She still eats and really heartily since she is now getting home-cooked meals. Unfortunately, her lymph nodes have started swelling really bad since she's been on the chemo she is on now. Vet wants her on it at least another week (from yesterday), but I am not sure it is worth it. It's capsules that I give at home. Next one would be another injection and they have to keep her for at least half a day. Tomorrow I am going to go get some of the immune supplement that we are running out of. She has so much stuff that it takes up half the stove. If you are a prayer warrior, please pray for my girl.

Well the calendar says October, but FL didn't get the message. This is the time of the year I miss New Hampshire the most. So beautiful with the crisp, clear days, beautiful foliage, and those wonderful apples.

Yesterday I I had a few things to eat that I have been avoiding for awhile and they were wonderful, and still stayed with my calories. Life is good and getting better.

Happy week-end to all.

Every day in every way, with the help of God and my friends, I am getting better, stronger, and healthier

Cassie has been home almost a week and is eating well (in fact, anxious for supper now), but her poop is really dark, so I got her some more of the prescription food. She seems to be feeling much better, too. Got up on the bed without help last night for a nice sleep. She pants if she gets a little warm, so I keep the fan going and have to cover up myself since it is getting much cooler at night now.

I am still looking for ideas on food for her to eat when she finishes the prescription food. Today I got her some ground turkey and spinach and my neighbor gave me some peppers to add. He doesn't remember what all they put in with Abby's turkey. She also had lymphoma.

I have never tried to adopt from the internet. Heard to many horror stories about home inspections and not even really owning the dog. They could comeback any time and for what ever reason take the animal back. Whenever I have adopted from the APCA they have given me something to fill out and checked with my vet to make sure any animals I have are up to date with the rabies shots. I have often taken the animal home the same day. I do have a cat and have said the dog needs o get along with the cat. When I chose a dog, I ask to walk the dog on leash past the cat cages. I have never had then say no, sometimes they will tell me they don't know how the dog will react around cats and suggest their trainer take the dog by the cats. I took the dog I have now past the cats. I don't care if the cat hissed, greeted the dog, or ignored him, He was only interested in weather or not their was food in the cage. Before he came home I had all the cats things in a back bedroom with a baby gate at the door.

thank you MaryAlice for your in put. i have tried to adopt 2 dogs from 2 rescue leagus and....i did find at each of the rescue leagues they were older dogs, but haven't been considered. the one place local to me has been really goofy. i know of several people who have tried to adopt a dog and they haven't been considered. i also tried to adopt the dog and have been turned down because i have cats. i tried a month ago and since i tried a couple of people showed interest in this dog and unfortunately the dog still hasn't been adopted. have talked to a couple of local people and they seemed to have problems also with adopting from that place. the one person said they tried to talk him out of adopting the dog.

i had many years adopted a dog from a local ASPCA. things have changed since.

if you try to adopt from a rescue league from the internet you have to fill out a questionnaire. these questionnaires are really in depth to fill out. i'm sure some people have done things and ended up returning the pet back to the rescue. the one place wanted pics of out side which was fine, but when it came to the inside i felt it was an invasion of my privacy. they have my vets phone number and have the OK to ask him questions. they know us very well, because they see my guys often.

i know my breeds and do walk and do want a dog that will walk with me.
well, time will be and patience is needed.

thank you for your input.

I have always gotten my dog from a rescue, Mostly the ASPCA, Go in knowing what you want. To the best they can they will give you what you want. I can train dogs but because I have a bad shoulder and walking with a staff I wanted a dog the could walk on a leash. it is hard enough for a trained dog.when I would still have to train him to heal on the right. The dog I chose wasn't leash trained, but I asked for a leash and it was very evident from the first he wasn't a puller and wanted to please, so I got him. Sometimes I find my match first time and sometimes it takes a month or two. My big thing is NO PUPPIES, my health can't handle it. So I don't look at anything under 2 years. Learn your breads. You can get mutts and pure breeds. Knowing your breeds helps in knowing what your dog likes. But then I have a lab mix that hates water so much he won't walk on the grass when there is due on it. I like long walks and have a fenced back yard, so a medium to large dog works best for me. If you have an apt and or don't real like to walk think about smaller dogs.

I wasn't able to pick Cassie up today, so I just went to see her. The vet said she was happy and eating this morning. She didn't seem happy when I was with her. She still has the catheter, so I think they still have her on IV. It's going to cost more than I have so I am trying to get help from the gofundme. All the veterinary help places that I have looked up are out of funds. Pets can't get sick after April at the latest.

I did go play pickleball after I got the update from the vet this morning. No update this afternoon.

According to one channel it got to 100 today. I know it was hot. I went out at around 10:00 to sit outside. It usually isn't hot yet at that time, but it was today. I had to come back in.

This morning the on-call vet called me and said Cassie still was not eating and still had diarrhea, though not bloody anymore. I got so scared I wouldn't be able to see her ever again and was in tears most of the day. This afternoon he called with an update and said she is eating, diarrhea is gone, no vomiting. I am so happy. Depending on how she does tomorrow and what her vet says, she might get to come home tomorrow night. I love that little girl. The lymphoma is bad enough, but adding on something like the gastroenteritis just made it worse. I will need to find all holistic treatments that I can to make her better and hope she goes into remission.

I took the Mutt out early this morning before it got hot. I'll take the Duke out this evening when the sun starts going down and it isn't quite so hot. I can't walk the dogs together and Mutts arthritis makes walks hard for him to walk later in the day. The old man is down yo a 30 minute mile and sometimes doesn't make a mile. The young dog does a 17 minute mile and wants 3 miles

A few weeks ago I found a growth on Cassie and last week she was scheduled for surgery to remove it. Problem was, it turned out to by lymphoma. She is now on prednisone (and that growth is gone) and starts Chemo on Wednesday. I don't know how far I can go with that without a lot of help, but I am going to try to give her the best life possible. I will be applying for help from a companion animal cancer aid place that I found out about at the Pet Expo. For now, I am making some changes to her diet and just trying to find out enough about possible causes and what can be done to get the longest remission.

I have changed from using the tap water here to using filtered water. I get refills at the health food store. I used to get 4 gallons at a time, now I have 9 gallons. I also got her some alkaline water since they say cancer can't live in an alkaline environment. That one will be hard to keep up with. Since I don't have much for food, I will be giving her the meat I would usually get and eat from cans myself.

Meantime, if anyone here makes their dogs meals homemade, can I get some ideas of recipes. She will be kept on very low carb (one reason for homemade, since kibble all has high carb content) since carbs turn to sugar and feed cancers. Please, I need all the help I can get. If you want a new topic started for that, let me know. Also, please pray for my little girl. She and Orzo (my cat) are all I have around to give me comfort anymore.

Thank you.

They made a movie out of the book "A Dog's Purpose" I didn't see it due to not wanting to cry lol. It looks like a good movie, so I bet the book is even better.

Never heard of that book, but doesn't sound like anything I would want to tread or listen to,

Good Morning work up this morning at 3 this morning to the dog that likes to sleep under the stars telling me it was raining, and boy was it coming down, Can't say I blame him for changing his mind. As I turn off the lights the dogs can say where they spend the night, The old man comes in and sleeps in his bed every night, The younger dog sleeps outside about 1/3 of the time.

I am listening to "A Dog's Purpose" on audio books- I don't think I will make it through- first chapter broke my heart several times. Beginning chapter two and don't know if I can go on. Anyone else read/listen to it?

Happy August Everyone!!!

Poor Willa. Do you think Willa could have allergies in general? Henley had outdoor and food allergies. He was miserable until we put him on medication. Just a thought.

Not sure if I posted this video before. If I did, then you are going to see it again. emoticon
It makes me smile.

I made a post asking about fly repellent for dogs and got a few suggestions. What I've tried so far was a mix of vinegar/water 1:1 with a small degree of success and some wipes I had from the vet called VetriScience Laboratories Vetri Repel Wipes. These seem to work a little also but Willa ended up with her eyes and lips swollen after our walk. My husband thought she may have gotten into some weed or something. I didn't use it around her face at all. Gigi wasn't bothered.

It's so hard to walk them when the deer flies are so bad.

I will try some of the other suggestions also once I find the necessary ingredients and also talk to my vet.

Cassie has been licking her belly a lot today and I can't figure out what is going on. She isn't off her feed, so I don't think it is a tummy ache. It looks more along the mammary area.

I had her at the vet's just a couple weeks ago since she needed her anals cleaned and they said she needed an exam at that time. No problems were found. She doesn't show any sign of mammary problems. The vet checked there particularly because she had a scabby tit from a problem in the past. I don't find anything like that now.

Anyone have any ideas why a dog would be licking so much? Could that be caused by some bug?

At the sound of the tolling midnight bell
a brand new year will begin.
Let's raise our hopes in a confident toast,
to the promise it ushers in.

May your battles be few, your pleasures many,
your wishes and dreams fulfilled.
May your confidence stand in the face of loss
and give you the strength to rebuild.

May peace of heart fill all your days
may serenity grace your soul.
May tranquil moments bless your life
and keep your spirit whole.

Hello Winter!!!



Winter arrives at 5:23 p.m. EST tonight and the darkest time of the year is almost behind us with daylight starting to lengthen tomorrow - even if it's only for a few seconds at the beginning, pretty soon we'll be noticing it getting brighter in the evening - woohoo!!!

In the dark of December
A magical thing
And sweet to remember.

'We are nearer to Spring
Than we were in September,'
I heard a bird sing
In the dark of December."

Now that's good news!!!

If I can catch her out on a walk again I might be able to get a side shot. When she's out in the back she just barks at me and is facing me. She doesn't like her picture taken. She's like my dog that way. I was thinking the side view would be better, too.
